This beautiful stone is a 2+ct Tanzanian Sunstone oval which measures approx 10x7mm. Tanzanian Sunstone was first found by a young Masai man on tribal grazing lands near Arusha in 2000. This Sunstone’s basic red-orange color mimics the bright hues of the Masai people’s dress. The Tanzanian Sunstone features large flakes of vivid red and orange hematite, floating within a pale green to colorless feldspar matrix, with plates aligned parallel to cleavage planes. Local African miners call these large flakes flowers. In many cases, the hematite plates reflect a multitude of electric neon colors as the stones are rotated, creating a lovely kaleidoscope of color.
